The Duke Department of Neurology's fellowship in sleep medicine is a one-year, ACGME-accredited program that emphasizes advanced training in sleep disorders management. Trainees will gain experience with interpretation of polysomnograms and multiple sleep latency tests, as well as seeing patients with a wide spectrum of sleep disorders.
The fellowship is based at both the Duke University Medical Center (DUMC) and the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC), with six months of training at each location.

The Durham VAMC Sleep Disorders Center consists of a four-bed laboratory that performs studies seven days a week. MSLTs, MWTs, and ambulatory PSGs are also performed in this laboratory. Fellows have exposure to these studies.
An additional research laboratory focuses primarily on insomnia and clinical research. Fellows read the various types of studies performed in the laboratory.
